HOW TO COOK OHA SOUP WITH CHICKEN

Image
Oha soup cooked with chicken is now my favorite. It's absolutely delicious. The best chicken to use in soups is native fowl or hard chicken. Frozen soft chicken may not withstand the heat and stirringof  Nigerian soups. Note that this soup can be cooked with any meats of choice. This chicken oha soup is cooked with cocoyam, no offor. Boiled cocoyam did the thickening job and it's awesome. My first daughter doesn't like soups and swallows, she prefers them foods like rice, yam, spaghetti and others that don't require soups to eat. Today, she just shocked me by finishing two wraps of raw blender pounded yam. I mean two wraps. First in the history of meeting this my liquid drinking baby girl. She cleared it all and asked me the name of the soup again and wondered why I never forced her to eat all the times that we cooked oha soup and she complained about the 'aroma'. Uziza leaves are good for oha soup but I skipped this time. Just wanted just the oha and chicken f…

VEGETABLE EGUSI SOUP

The quantity of vegetables added to egusi soup, the thickness too depends on how you like your soupsh. I like my soups a bit watery but cooked this thick to make my family happy.

RAW BLENDER POUNDED YAM

Pounded yam in the past could only be made by manually grinding boiled yams with mortar and pestle. These days, with the help of Technology, with food processors and blenders, pounded yam that used to take upto an hour to cook and pound can now be made and served in 5 minutes. You can also make good pounded yam using a food processor

The yam I used is not even the white lovely type yet the fufu is

IRISH POTATO FUFU RECIPE

Image
Irish potato fufu is very smooth and it's texture I can say is more on the semo side than pounded yam. Easy and very fast. In no time my fufu swallow is ready and served. If you live where pounded yam is hard to come by, you can easily make this and swallow to quench that our African craving for fufu swallows. 
I wanted some fufu this afternoon and did not want my garri because my palates craves something smoother, and there's no yam available right now so I looked straight at the bag of potatoes standing in the store room, and dismissed the thought because Irish

How To Cook Egusi Soup With Waterleaf

Image
Nigerian Egusi soup can be cooked with vegetables like (ugu) (fluted pumpkin), amaranthus (Aleho, green), tomatoes, bitter leaf, Spinach,water leaf and so on. Egusi soup tastes great wih all those green leafy vegetables but honestly, waterleaf has a way of softening the soup and making it so enjoyable. When I cook egusi with ugu leaves (Fluted pumpkin) a pinch of ground ogbono is added to soften soup a bit without making it drawy. With waterleaf in egusi soup, you don't need no softener, just enjoy.
For those who can't find waterleaf, use spinach.

INGREDIENTS:
4 cups egusi
2 kg beef
1 stock fish head
1/2 cup ground crayfish
2 medium sized smoked catfish
pepper to taste
1 bunch waterleaf
1 tablespoonful palm oil (You can add more)
1 medium sized onion to steam the beef
Salt to taste
Seasoning cubes
5 cups water to start with, you add more as you cook to get your desired thickness.


PREPARATION:

Steam beef and stock fish with onion, pepper, seasoning and salt till almost

Recipe for Cow-leg white soup

Image
Nigerian white soup is cooked without palm oil even though sometimes I add a few drops of oil to mine. This cow leg white soup is cooked with no oil. Recipe is same as other white soups just the addition of cow leg to this pot. There is no special method of cooking this, just cook cow leg soft and then add to your boiling soup. Cow-legs are very tough but this cooked really fast because I pressure cooked the leg first. If you have our white soup recipe, it is basically the same method with just twists and twerks each time I cook the soup. When you cook with cow leg, it's best to add some other form of protein like fish, beef or chicken because cow leg on it's own is almost tasteless, I added some tiny pieces of

Recipe - Groundnut dry afang soup served with low carb guinea corn fufu

Image
Groundnut (Peanut) soup can be cooked with or without vegetables. Here the delicious soup is cooked with very dry afang vegetable I have preserved for some time. This is the best groundnut soup yet. The little water leaf added softness and nutrition to the pot. Groundnut soup is one of the easiest Nigerian soupsto cook. Nigerian groundnut soup can be cooked with any green leafy vegetable of choice. There are no strict methods, can be cooked with raw or roast groundnut depending on the taste you enjoy more. Doesn't require many ingredients to taste great. In this recession, this soup and okra soup are the first two soups I will recommend to anyone looking for less expensive delicious soups to cook.  Someone said cooking Nigerian meals can be very intense, but I promise you, cooking this soup is not difficult in anyway. Even if one doesn't have any experience with Nigerian soups, this is a straight forward kind of soup that requires neither skill nor experience. Just get ground…

How to make oats coconut fufu

Image
Oats coconut fufu is made with desiccated coconuts and some oats. The quantity of coconuts is more that the oats. The aim is to eat less carb and the addition of the quaker oats here is to help with binding as coconuts have no starch. This was totally enjoyed and very easy to make. I used quaker oats and in less than 10 minutes, my fufu was ready, smooth and fluffy.

Oats coconut fufu is very good for people looking to lose weight and for those who want to cut down on carbohydrates. Diabetics can also enjoy this meal as the sweetness of the coconut is no longer there, just the chaff. Coconut fufu served with vegetable soup like this is very nutritious and great for the whole family.
There is also guinea corn coconut fufu recipe on the blog.

INGREDIENTS FOR OATS COCONUT FUFU:

Recipe: How to make guinea corn fufu from scratch

Guinea corn is awesome  in terms of nutrients, and can provide us  with vitamins like niacin, riboflavin, and thiamin, as well as high levels of magnesium, iron, copper, calcium, phosphorous, and potassium, as well as nearly half the daily required intake of protein.  It is not only recommended for babies as adults too need all those vitamins. Guinea corn (sorghum) fufu is made the exact same way as the millet fufu I posted earlier. Unlike cassava and yam, the bulk of guinea corn and millet is fiber, which is good for
